Take a minute and think about who your best friend is. What is it about them that makes them your best friend? Is it because they push you and help you be the best version of yourself? Is it because they motivate you and don’t allow you to give up?
What if being your own best friend was the way to success? What if those things your best friend does for you were things you could do for yourself?
Sometimes, you are the only person you need.
You need to learn how to motivate and push yourself better than anybody. You can’t depend on others to be there to pick you up when you’re down or to give you that pat on the back when you do something well. YOU have to be that person for yourself. YOU have to be the back-patter and the picker-upper. No one else.
Feeling down? Uplift yourself. Feeling angry? Calm yourself down. Accomplished something? Tell yourself good job. Feeling sad? Make yourself smile.…you get where this is going. Do these things for yourself. Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you.
You need to be able to be your own coach, your biggest fan, and your biggest inspiration. The most successful people out there are the ones who can push themselves harder on their own than any outside force ever will be able to. They’re able to talk themselves through the worst of times and clap for themselves through the best of times. They’re always telling themselves how can they do better, not waiting for someone else to.
